The big leagues

My work schedule has expanded from 3 days a week to 4,
which is the tipping point for making it worth buying 
a monthly train pass.

My first monthly pass!

I feel so grown up.

At last, some sun.

Turning Oscar's and an anonymous rabbit's footprints
into art.

Melting just enough snow from the roof
to ornament the winterberry shrub
with icy glitter.

Gilding Oscar's sweet face.

Not pictured:
3 undergarments hanging on the clothesline
after being (unsuccessfully) whitened
 with a very (as it turned out) perfumy product
that I purchased without really thinking it through.
Now optimistically being aerated and deodorized of the sickly sweet perfumy smell
(that continues to cling after 2 washings)
by hanging on the line in the sun and cold wind.
(And why didn't I check the product safety info online first??)
